Issue with transferred files
Posted 31 July 2012 - 02:00 PM
im just testing the SmartFTP Client. I stumbled upon a weird problem:
- a) if i upload a file with SmartFTP, the websites data is not updated.
- if i i upload a file via the Windows Explorer, the website data is updated immediately.
Browser Caches are disabled, websites (serverside) cache too. Whats wrong with Smart FTP?
I guess Smart FTP doesnt tell the server the data was changed or somewhat like that? I have no idea and knowledge about things like that, but wondering what causes this.
Can someone help me out here, with this issue im unable to use Smart FTP.

Does it work if you delete the file on the server first before you replace it?

The files are used in a framework. Theyre actually templates and stuff. The websoftware compiles the templates in an own file. But even if this file is deleted, and newly generated, local & server caches deleted, the website doesnt update.
I have to switch the templates used by the framework, and back to make the website update its content.
-> nevertheless all of this isnt necessary if i upload via Windows Explorer.
Is there a Header being sent with an FTP file transfer which tells the server to update the data? Or just something like that? I dont get that at all. It must be something so simple.
